want to come out of the shadows and the other have a mistrust of government and they feel philip morris will come in and wipe them out. >> interesting. let's bring in aaron. what do you think about that? would that mean that philip morris and others they would, right? they'd come right in? well, that's certainly a possibility. >> not that there's anything wrong with that, right? >> well, i think the marijuana industry would look more akin to the beer industry where you do have some large producers of beer who have maybe half of the market share and you also have a flourishing market in craft beers and the microbreweries throughout the country, and i think we'll probably see something similar to that. >> would this solve california's budget crisis? ? how much of the gap would this close here? aaron, what do you think? jane, either of you? >> the board of equalization estimates that taxes for marijuana, for the marijuana industry could yield about $1.4 billion and that wouldn't close the budget gap in california. not even close. not even close, but to put that in perspective that would pa

the pressure of philip randolph and the march on washington that they gave in. you have a situation where if big business and republicans had their way you would have no price controls, no 40 hour week because they were against paying overtime, no hiring of minorities, you would have had a situation that makes the day's republicans look somewhat better. it was only because of extra parliamentary pressure like philip randolph's threat to move on washington that these things were finally changed. a threat which the communist party opposed because they were going after the war effort. in today's terms it is difficult to understand how reactionary much of the country was and what a difficult time roosevelt had and his own reluctance in many instances to do what in retrospect what would have been done. this brings me briefly to the holocaust where i have long documentation in the book because for the most part we're documenting things that aren't there. the p.m. did not say anything about holocaust until november of 1940 to when the rabbi made a famous speech in which he told the country this

. they can't give it to philip roth every year. so then i opened the envelope and saw that in fact they were asking me to host the awards and i was like that's cool because it is an honor. it is a big honor and it is also probably good for my career because on the next edition of whom moved my soap it will save from the national book award hosting writer. [laughter] and no one knows what that means. it's like a national best seller. nobody checks to find out. that means you are a best seller for one week in akron. no one checks. but as i read this letter from the national book foundation it did start to rankle a little bit because i realized when it comes down to but i was being asked to come here to give an award i could have won two other writers deemed more deserving. that is the situation tonight. let's not kid ourselves that is what is going on. and this brought back bad memories of something that happened a couple of years ago i got a letter from the eckert their foundation, the genius grant people and i was excited i opened that letter and found out that the macarthur people wanted me
